Though the Google Chrome is much faster than the other web browsers, developers were not more interested for the limitation of Google chrome. Because there was no plug-in available as such as in Firefox.
But the good news for the web developers is that Google has now released many useful extensions for Google chrome. The list of such extensions is quite large. But here I’ve discussed about the chrome extensions that web developers must know.
1. Web Developer Mini [Add to Chrome]
The web Developer Mini works like the plug-in Firebug in Firefox. This show the html and the CSS code of the current page. But you cannot treat Web Developer Mini as the replacement of Firebug. But the extension is still being in the developing stage and you can expect better performance in future.
2. View Selection Source – 1.0 [Add to Chrome]
This extension shows the source code of a selected region of any web page in the Google chrome browse. Just select the space by dragging the mouse and then click on the extension “View Selection Source”. This extension is very useful for the web developers.
3. Nofollow Checker – 1.0 [Add to Chrome]
The Nofollow Checker extension highlights the nofollow (rel=”nofollow”) links in a web page. This extension is not so much useful for the general users. But from the webmasters’ aspect, it is a handy tool for SEO.
4. SEO status Pagerank/Alexa Toolbar – 1.0 [Add to Chrome]
“The SEO status Pagerank/Alexa Toolbar” extension is very handy to check the Google Pagerank and the Alexa rank of any page that you visit. Using this facility the web developers can optimize their websites to increase the Alexa and Google Pagerank. Not only that but also it displays the back links from other pages along with the Page rank and also checks for the nofollow links. It also shows the whois information for the web pages. This extension sounds good for the web developers.
5. SitezMeter – 0.4.1 [Add to Chrome]
SitezMeter also performs the same job as “SEO status Pagerank/Alexa Toolbar”.It shows the Google Pagerank and the Alexa traffic rank for the pages. The extra facility of this extension is that you can compare traffic between websites.
6. Speed comment – 1.1 [Add to Chrome]
The Speed Comment extension allows you to comment quickly on any website or blog.
7. IMacros For Chrome [Add to Chrome]
“IMacros For Chrome” is very popular plug-in to automate the daily activities in Firefox. But now the extension is also available for the Google Chrome. The record and replay facility lets you automate your daily tasks. Since it is in developing stage, don’t store any password in IMacros.
